Being a female entrepreneur means you constantly face challenges not only as a business owner, but also as a woman. The younger you are, the more steps you have to climb to be recognized as a capable, independent and professional individual. You know how it goes, right? But, listen carefully.

We are living important times.

Women are holding hands again to make big changes in the world.

Women are working together. We are speaking up. We are struggling, and helping each other, and believing that we are worth our deepest desires.

There is a special connection among female warriors. A deep and sacred bond that when cultivated becomes unbreakable.

I'm so lucky to have found an amazing group of women that inspires me to always go further. This year for the third time we got together to celebrate all of us, lady bosses, and take sometime to recognize our accomplishments during the Like a Boss Party.  A reminder of hard work, beautiful collaborations and endless possibilities! The best way to wrap up a year full of adventures and new beginnings.

May this new year bring many more challenges and opportunities to grow together.

We met last year. And clicked immediately. When women with strong energy get together, magic happens. 

Shannon and Teri put together the first #likeabossparty in 2014 so creatives and entrepreneurs had a space to get together, network and start planning awesome things for the upcoming year. Kerra and I joined them this year, and we all hosted this amazing event!

Being an entrepreneur has taught me so many invaluable lessons, but the most important one is this one: "If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together". I'm a feminist, and I believe in women's energy in all spheres. Luckily, and after searching a lot, I found a fabulous network of women in DC who are hustling to make their ideas and dreams happen. All of them have their talents, and I'm convinced that combining them only brings good things.

The #likeabossparty was a celebration of talented women! We had so much fun, and the most amazing collaborators! Please see all tags in the pictures for details. All of them are amazing - and of course, they are mostly women ;) 

I couldn't be happier with the results! And I'm extremely grateful for my lady bosses around. So, here's to every one of them and their projects (picture the glass of bubbly I'm holding now) and to you! May this New Year bring us much more energy and magic. Let's hustle.

Thanks for passing by! Happy Holidays! xx.


#Like a Boss

Oh the Holidays! Full of events, and bubbly and surprises.

I started this adventure almost a year ago, and never imagine what would come with it. I've been lucky to meet many talented and amazing ladies that keep inspiring my journey. One of them is Shannon who had the great idea to bring creatives together and throw a Like a Boss Party! Her and Teri put together a night of cheers and design chat that I'm sure will happen again next year - or maybe earlier.

It was the perfect night to get together with designers, bloggers and entrepreneurs. Recharge batteries and plan conquering the world together! jaja! No. Seriously. These ladies are capable of anything. And I'm happy to be part of it :)

Now, take a look at the gorgeous Holiday styling in here! Talking about inspiration...

Have a great day you guys! And enjoy the Holidays.xx!
